Paper Abstract

This paper will review ongoing research in technologies that support Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS). Future requirements for UGS systems are offered based on observations of military evolution. We make the argument that UGS systems of the future will serve a broader functionality, including mobile soldier and small unit operation missions. Research results are then presented in the areas of acoustic classification, noise radar, low-cost IR imaging and low power techniques. The research we have undertaken shows promise for low-power, low cost sensors and signal processing in support of the UGS vision.
